Reviewed 16 July 2014

Nothing special. Modern surroundings but just the usual facilities we all expect in a purpose built hotel. Impersonal, staff didn't, take the time to welcome us on arrival, "name please" was as good as it got. This hotel probably suits business users or anyone who is not looking for customer service delivered in a friendly manner.

Stayed over at the Abode for 1 night for our wedding anniversary on the 12th July, and what a brilliant stay it was. From the moment we arrived the red carpet was rolled out. Great car parking inside the hotel building, lovely room (we had a private balcony), fantastic champagne bar and restaurant overlooking the race course and best of all top class customer care from very professional staff. Thinking of staying somewhere else in Chester? Think again - it has to be Abode.

Nice hotel with well equipped rooms (although a fridge would improve offering). Well located, however, a couple of things to note!
* Half of the rooms look over to the racecourse, the over half -direct into the Council offices! And I mean literally, you can see them making coffee, having their meetings - and imagine what they can see...... Hotel not full, so for £200+ a night might have preferred a bit of a view.
* Car park - again shared with Chester Council - is a nightmare. No hotel spaces free, concrete pillars everywhere - if you have a larger car I advise you park in the public car park which is very near & far less stressful.
* Breakfast - good hot offering from menu, however cold offering minimal with the saddest pastry selection I have seen for a while, with bite size croissants. no excuse really.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT looking into the Council offices

The Abode is ideally located for a visit to Chester...a mere 5 minute walk to the old town. The staff was very helpful when we requested recommendations and directions. The gal behind the desk was exceptionally helpful supplying us with local maps, brochures, etc.

Stayed at Abode for one night. Overall very good particularly restaurant. The service and evening meal was excellent. Room was ok - looked a little tired and a fridge would be useful. Checking in was very slow and lounge bar service was very slow due to number of large parties visiting. More staff required.

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights on a business trip. The room with a kingsized bed for one person was clean and very very quiet (facing the racetrack, but it was not happening that week). Great wifi, nice (tasty, cheap) snacks, chocolates and lemonade in the room for a sudden hunger attack, also selection of tea, coffee, couple of complimentary cookies. I did miss a bathtub, but it was not in the package, I understand. The hotel is in a modern, glassy building just a stone throw away (3 mins walking distance) from the spectacular old city of Chester (also lots of small cute shops that close at 5.30 pm and nice restaurants) and river Dee promenade. The breakfast though was a let down. The staff really tried, but all that was good was tasty marmalade, toast and fruit.You can order scrambled eggs, omelette or oatmeal at your table, but the taste was below mediocre, oily or glueye. All in all, I'd recommend to stay at Abode (especially if you have a cheaper deal or a special offer), but skip the breakfast!

Room Tip: Ask for a room not directly facing the busy Grosvernor street.
